Hello all, sorry I haven't been very active since I made my account. Life has kept me very busy this summer. As I said in my introduction thread, I am newly saved (since April), and I'm feeling really blessed in everything, and I know that God has a plan for me. However, I'm in a tough spot right now. I really want to find a godly woman that shares my values and wants to grow in her walk with Christ with me. Sadly, I live in a small town. There is an active community of believers, which is great - and I learn a lot from them, but they're mostly of retirement age while I'm in my late 20's. In church there are only two single women that are about my age, one of which God used to help me get saved (I'm eternally grateful for that). The other woman, although I'm nice to/with her, just doesn't mesh with me, I stay on friendly terms with her and I'm always gracious, but deep down she's just one of those people that grinds my gears...so I can't be around her for long, if that makes sense. The lady that helped me get saved, I fancy her a lot and we get along great, but I asked her out a long time ago (before I was saved) and she turned me down. Don't really feel like trying my luck at a second rejection since we get along great as friends. My dilemma comes in...small town, how do I find a godly woman? I'm tied to my church now, and the girl that helped me get saved would really be upset if I went to the other baptist church (history of a church split) or even going to a very closely aligned church (not baptist) with minor differences, but still Bible-based. I mean, I wouldn't "switch" churches, but I thought it would be nice to every once and a while go and try to meet other believers around my age. I've joined young adult meetups...but I'm just a little too old for them, and the regular adult meetups are full of married couples. I'm in a few Bible studies, but two are men only and the other one is with the two women mentioned before and a few other people from my church. To top it all off, outside of a relationship, I don't really have Christian friends. The one guy I hangout with that's about my age will be going back to college in the fall. To keep bringing them up, I will hangout with the two women occasionally, but I always have to set things up. They've invited me to...one activity, and I'm pretty sure it's only because the person that was visiting wanted them to. Still, the one time I setup something with a male friend around them they were upset I didn't invite them...yet weeks go by and they never invite me anywhere. I'm whining now, haha. Sorry, I'm just having a really hard time now being single and not having many Christian friends. I feel like I'm coming to my wits end to some degree. My non-Christian friends always want to meet at bars and they're trying to set me up with women that are not Christian. I'm not going to, but I can't say it's not tempting right now. That got sad fast, I apologize.
